MARCEL 15. 1907. 



EEV. FATHER MAETLN 0. S. -B. 

Late Superintendent of the 

Farm School, Standing Rock, 

writes from Pierre, S. 1). 

PIERRE, S. DAK. FEB. 7, 1907. 
Rev. Dear Father Jerome: 

Although a 
little late I come — as 1 have promised 
you before, to thank you for your kind 
.words of farewell you addressed to 
me through your worthy Paper, the 
Eyaupaha, in its November number. 
I appreciate very much , the good 
things you said in regard to my work 
among the Sioux Indians of the. Standing 
Rock .Reservation during the last 22 
years, But, if any success, attended 
my labors, I must share the merits of 
it with my faithful co-laborers, the 
priests and , sisters and other good 
people, who faithfully from the very 
beginning have borne with me the 
heat and the burden, of the day, and who 
have patiently persevered with me un- 
der the most difficult hardships and 
discouraging trials. To them, goes out 
in tne first place the gratitude and sym- 
pathy of my heart for ever. Then I 
must not feu-get those zealous mission- 
aries, who had prepared the way before 
me. Amongst them, you, Dear Father 
Jerome, and your faitnfui corn-pan i on < 
Brother Giles, are certainly entitled 
to a great deal of credit for the mis- 
sionary and educational work done in 
the Standing Rock country in early 
days — as you erected tne first church, 
a brick building at that, no easy task 
in those Pioneer days — at Fort Yates 
or Standiug Rack Agency- 1 -- not to for- 
get the other pious missionaries, priests 
and brothers from St. Meiurad, who 
have since gone to their reward, but 
will continue to be intercessors for 
the poor people to whom they mini- 
stered during the best portion of their 
lives. May the merciful Eorcl be their 
abundant reward! Some of their names 
are stiii household words in many 
good christian Indian families, and tne 
records of the Mission show t,o law ma- 
ny they have opened the gate of heaven 
by holy baptism and the other Sacra- 
ments of the church, which. God's holy 
Angels certainly did not faii to enter for 
their benefit and to their credit in the 
Book of life. They were men. who 
did their work unnoticed by the world, 
mostly aiso unseen by the eyes of men, 
but the more the lights thereof will 
snine in heaven, and even, on earth it 
is not forgotten. I had the picture 
of some of those early missionaries in 
my room, and more than once, to my 
great surprise,., would men of the world, 
of whom I never expected it. and who 
in general did not seem to pay much 
attention to religion, point to this or 
that picture, and say: "Father, here is 



a man, that was not known to the 
outside world, was not a. great lecturer 
or preacher, did not .perform any fa- 
mous deeds to catch the eyes of men, 
but went simply to and fro among 
these poor Indians teaching and bap- 
tizing, don't you think he was a greater 
man and has done more good for God's 
Cnurcti and ins Kingdom tii.au many 
who have a name in history'''' Ana 
I had to say: 'A'es and Amen." May 
their memory live long in the hearts oi 
the Indians; wno still remember their 
sacrificial life amongst theiii. I also 
must and will not forget' the helping 
hand extended to ine from tne begin 
ning m the position which I held in 
connection with the "Dear Old harm 
School" by many employed. in the Gov- 
ernment Service and other good friends. 
To them also I. owe a just tribute of 
thanks. May He, Wno readily rewards 
a cup of water given to the way. side 
beggar, abundantly repay their kind 
services to me. 

You rightly remark, that my efforts' 
were, not always fculy appreciated by 
some of the Standing Ruck people. 
To my great sorrow i must testify to 
the truth of these words, but I nope that 
many will have their eyes opened by, 
this time, and wili try to profit by 
their past mistakes and wrong judg- 
ments. T hope m particular that those 
whites, (Mixed- bloods) and b'uii-blood 
Indians whose grievance and complaints' 
it was at tunes, that there v. as too 
mucn religion and prayer m my school, 
will learn differently by and by if not, 
all at once, wnmu can hardly be ex- 
pected, when poor reasoning and per- 
haps also some prejudice prevails. 
Suffice it to say, that f conducted 
in tins regard the school as much as 
possible on strictly Governmental hues 
as Inspectors would give me credit for 
it more than once. I had not more 
prayers or religious practices in the 
school than there should be in any good 
Catholic Indian family. All denomina- 
tions, which have anything of religion 
left m their profession, must concede, 
that if we do not train, tiie children reh-. 
giously in their young and tender years 
we might just as well tear down our 
churches and be don* with it for all 
future. Persons who will say children 
should be allowed to grow up without 
religion, only to choose what or how 
much they want of it, when they are 
grown up, have not the least idea of 
j what religion is or of wiiat it should 
i signify in a man's life. Show me a 
I man who claims to be educated and has 
j perhaps even in his own youth received 
| religious training, wno will say there 
j was too much religion taught and piay. 
i'ng done here and Caere, and you will 
| not be mistaken to take him to be of 
I that sort, who on account of their 
lives must wish of necessity, that 



there was no God, no religion, no 
prayer, no responsibility nor accounta- 
bility to a Higher Being. The false 
reasonings of the head are in this case 
prompted by the moral corruption of 
the heart. His conclusion and argu- 
ment may be used fearlessly and with- 
out mistake, wherever we meet with 
such assertions} at least my own judg- 
ment never proved erroneous in such 
cases and with such persons. Even a 
great many sensible Non-Catholics will 
admit, that not to mucn religion can 
be taught in Indian Schools. Why are 
of late special appeals made to the 
churches on the part of certain societies 
and conferences for more active reli- 
gious woi'K among the Indians—would 
that not mean it should be done prin- 
cipally among the children and young 
people— the hope of the future? Why 
has even the Government of late years 
made rather generous allowance for re- 
ligious instruction in Indian Govern- 
ment Schools? When I left Standing 
Rock I remarked that the people I left 
behind, might cianior yet for more 
prayer and religious instruction. I do 
not know, whether my prophecy will 
be fulfilled or not, but strange to say. 
tne first Indian I met since I left the 
reservation, complained to me bitterly 
that his child whom he had in a near 
by non-reservation school did not re- 
ceive any religious instruction and could 
go to church very seldom. He very earn- 
estly requested me, that I should see 
the Superintendent and tne parish priest 
of tne place about it. Now tms man 
was not geographically so well Situated 
as tne .'standing Rock Catholic Indians 
were all along, that hecoulasend his 
child conveniently to a school, w here re- 
ligious instruction and practice were 
assured, therefore tie did the next best 
thing and sent his cniid to a non-reser- 
vation school on tne promise of the 
agents sent out by that school, that tne 
child would have a chance to be proper- 
ly instructed and go to cuurch and tiie 
toacraments regularly., although tins 
promise was evidently poorly Kept or at 
ieast not carried out according to his 
wishes and expectations. May our 
people take a lesson from such cases. 
There would evidently not be too much 
praying and religion for this one par- 
ticular Indian in any of the schools. 
It was very strange and painful to me 
to hear at times such complaints about 
too much praying etc. from Catholic 
families that wanted and pretended to 
be leading christians among their peo- 
ple, and made a great many demands on 
the priest in the hue of unnecessary sick 
cails and other troublesome requests, 
that w T ere, often uncalled for, as to assist 
at funerals, where no distance or incle- 
mency of weather or season would be 
taken as excuse by these people in favor 
of the oriest. They seemed in such cases 



to understand alright, that religion 
should form the principal part in their 
lives, but had not the good seise to un- 
derstand, that it should also be upper- 
most in the minds and hearts of tne,;. 
children at all times, if the services o.1; 
the priest should do thern any good in 
their after years and especially at the 
hour of death. 

Every body engaged in the Indian 
worn pretends to be helping to make 
a. good citizen of the Indian, but if we 
do not form his conscience rightly in his 
young years, 'he will never be a good 
citizen. Conscience is the tr.» e moral 
sense of right or wrong or the correct 
conviction of right and duty. The right 
land of conscience is a very necessary 
tiling for an Indian. 

Because he lias no consciece therefore 
the Indian, like other peopie, does Often 
not try to make an honest living, but is 
always intent on beating or overreach- 
ing somebody, fanes to gambling, drink- 
ing, thieving, divorce, and. ail those bad 
things and excesses, that persons are apt 
to indulge in, that have no sense of duty. 
And here it is exactly, where the work 
of religion comes in. Let religion do its 
part unhampered, and by audi by the 
Indian's conscience and sense of duty 
wih be better cultivated. Lai us hea.r . 
what Archbishop Ireland has to say on 
this point. in ''his great oration on 
Conscience — The mainstay of Democra- 
cy, delivered on May 13. 1807 before the 
Chamber of Commerce i.f the city of 
Cleveland, Ohio, the great St. Paul 
Prelate sard: "Conscience is the voice 
of the Mighty God speaking to tne 

soul And religion it is that binds 

the soul to God, bringing down to the 
soul the sense of the love and the 
power of God and lifting up the soul 
into the embrace of God- A people 
without religion is a people without 
God, a people without God is a peopie 
without conscience, and a peopie vvitii- 
ou t conscience is a peopie incapable of 
the sacrifices that sincere and 
earnest .. patriotism imposes. Even 
pagan Rome understood that country 
and religion stand or fall together. Its 
battle-cry was for altars and hearth- 
stones. 7 ' Profoundly true are the words 
of the Hebrew prophet: ''The nation 
and kingdom that wili not serve Tnee 
shall perish. .,-. . . Our hopes for America 
rise from our trust in the religious 
convictions of her people. The enemies 
of God and of religion are the worst 
enemies of the country; be there no 
place for them in America." 

As a future citizen the Indian will be 
a part of' our people, and should there- 
fore come to us as the friend, not the, 
enemy of our country, that is as a reli- 
gious, God serving and God-fearing be- 
ing. 

If we want the Indian to be a good 
citizen, we want him also to be a patriot 



MARCEL 15. 1907. 



— a lover of this country— in the truest 
sense of the word. According to the 
words quoted above he cannot be that 
very well without religion, which he 
should be allowed not only to pick up 
here and there piece meal, in discon- 
nected fragments, but in which he 
should be systematically trained from 
his youth as he is in any other thing 
which he is expected to know and learn. 
Why should we deny and refuse reli- 
gion the most important factor in a 
man's life, what we readily grant every 
other branch, trade or profession man 
wants to learn. We readily concede and 
consent, that if a child is to acquire 
proficiency in this or that knowledge, 
he has to be drilled and trained in it 
theoretically and practically, and this 
not only once or at intervals, but for a 
long time. If the U. S. Government 
wants the Indian boys and girls to be- 
come industrious, adept and proficient 
in farming and housekeeping and other 
pursuits of civilized life, thinking this 
to be a very good thing for them for 
their future selfsupport, comfort and 
right mode of living, do in this case 
the authorities wait tiil some nice morn- 
ing the Indian boy sees fit to walk out to 
the barn or field to place himself at the 
disposal of the Industrial Teacher, or 
the young dusky maiden would make 
up her tender mind to profit at liberty 
and according to choice by the instruc- 
tion of the Cook or Matron— no— there 
is no waiting, these things are not left 
to the choice or good pleasure of the 
pupil, he has to put his shoulder to the 
wheel and learn to work, he has to learn 
things by doing them at once. Nobody 
of sound mind would dispute for a mo- 
ment the correctness of this proceeding. 
■ But, should then the chief concern of 
man. his religion, be the only thing 
about which we should feel so delicate 
and timid and distant as it were, to 
bring it squarely and directly — before 
the mind and heart of the young In- 
dians, who are more in need of its bless- 
ings, benefits and helps than of any- 
thing else. It is a great mistake to 
feel chat way about this most impor- 
tant matter, and the more so to act 
upon this erroneous supposition. May 
the Indian parents in the Sioux coun- 
try be more and more penetrated by 
the true spirit of the Catholic religion, 
and have a true lively and active faith, 
that will make them see, that true re- 
ligion is something more than only 
meeting together and talking muci;, 
but that it is a living thing, t :at should j 
take a firm hold? on their daily lives to ' 
bring them nearer to their God by 
prayer, Holy Mass and the sacraments 
of the church and make them better 
men and women in their families, in the 
church and in their dealings with 
others; then they will understand that | 
it is the most precious gift also for their 
children to have, that it never can be 
imparted too soon or too early to them 
in their young years, and that they 
can never have too much or even 
enough of it. 

Now, Dear Father Jerome, my letter 
has become much longer than I in- 
tended to make it, but it gave ine a 



chance to talk through you also to* the 
readers of your valuable paper, and give 
some insructions and explanations to 
people with whom I was so long and 
whose vvelfare is. still near to my heart. 

Tours very sincerely in Christ 

Fe. Martin, O. S. 1!. 

I shake hands with you and Brother 
Giles, and all the Kev. Missionaries in 
the Sioux country, and with the mem- 
bers of St. Joseph's and St. Mary's So- 
cieties wishing them God's blessing, 
health and prosperity.
